SFDI 2021 is a workshop held in conjunction with VLDB 2021
. It aims at fostering discussion, exchange, and innovation in research and development in software foundations for data interoperability as well as the applications in real-world systems such as data markets. SFDI 2020 invites not only people from the database
community but also researchers and professionals from programming language, software engineering, distributed computing, and natural language processing to share their knowledge and experience. For example, bidirectional transformation has been intensively studied in both database and programming language communities to address the view update problem, and a recent trend is to use bidirectional transformation for data sharing and data interoperability in P2P networks. In addition, many machine learning and natural language processing models have been utilized for data management, especially for data integration tasks. We thus hope to bring together academia and industry people in related areas for the discussion of challenges and technical solutions to software foundations of data interoperability. SFDI 2020 solicits full and short research papers describing preliminary and ongoing research results.

Conflict of Interest
To minimize biases in the evaluation process, we use CMT's conflict management system, through which authors should flag conflicts with PC members. All authors of a submission must declare conflicts on CMT prior to the submission deadline. Papers with incorrect or incomplete conflict of interest information as of the submission closing time are subject to immediate rejection.
A paper author has a conflict of interest with a PC member when, and only when, one or more of the following conditions holds:
- The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
- The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
- The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
- The PC member is or was the author's primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
- The author is or was the PC member's primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
- The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.
Duplicate Submissios and Novelty Requirement
A research paper submitted to SFDI 2021 cannot be under review for any other publishing forum or presentation venue, including conferences, workshops, and journals, during the time it is being considered for SFDI 2021. Every research paper submitted to SFDI 2021 must present substantial novel research not described in any prior publication. In this context, a prior publication is (a) a paper presented, or accepted for presentation, at a refereed conference or workshop with proceedings; or (b) an article published, or accepted for publication, in a refereed journal.
Length, File Type, and Formatting
- Length: Full papers must be no more than 14 pages in length, including all materials. Short papers must be no more than 6 pages in length, including all materials.
- File type: Each research paper is to be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper and no more than 5 MB in file size.
- Formatting: Research papers must follow the Springer LNCS Format, using the template provided at LNCS author guidelines.
Presentation and Dissemination
Accepted papers will be orally presented at SFDI 2021 (on the first day of VLDB 2021) and will be published in the Springer CCIS series.
Each paper is assigned 20 mins time slot for oral presentation.
